you will laugh...But there is a CT70 that my wife's family used to beat up, that I offered to restore this winter...a bit of a project....dayum...so THAT is a scooter?.....or mini bike?...

Pics - 2002 Aprilia SR50 Ditech

2002 Aprilia SR-50 DiTech bought used with about 1600 miles...
* Electric starter.
* Inspected, registered, fully street legal.
* 1200 miles.
* DiTech Fuel Injection give approx 80mpg.
* Automatic oil injection - no premixing.
* Automatic transmission.
* Disk brakes front and rear.

From the factory this scooter will do about 45mph on a good day. It needed more so on the way home from picking it up from the seller I dropped it off at Apollo Motorsports (Houston) and had them install the following stuff. Cost about a grand, installed. Probably paid a bit too much, but hey, it was turn-key and it's done, not sitting on the workbench

* Malossi 70cc kit with upgraded fuel injection - gives greater horsepower and top speed.
* LeoVince ZX exhaust, with carbon fiber silencer - allows the bigger engine to breathe and generates greater torque and horsepower.
* Malossi final drive with straight-cut gears and taller gear ratio - allows greater top speed when used with 70cc kit.
* Malossi variator weights - allows for quicker starts with less bogging.
* Halogen headlight - for better visibility.

All told, the mods give faster accelleration and a top speed between 50 and 65 mph, depending upon whether you have a headwind or tailwind, but I regularly get about 55 to 58 mph out of it.

Commuter mode...


LeoVince ZX pipe...


Front end view...


Grimeca front brake caliper...


Instrument panel...


Underseat storage...


Fuel Injection...


Rear wheel and disk brake. Interestingly, the 125 non-us version has drum rear brake, unless it's been changed in the last year or so...


Right view...


Enjoy...

A couple of my scoots....

In the forefront is the Malagutti Falcon 150, just to the left rear is the ol'e trusty but slow Honda Elite 80 and er..the real scoot is the the right.

Saw these vintage scooters at a swap meet in San Marino, IT in '02 when we were there for the Motogiro.

Not sure what model this is, if anybody has a full pic of it I'd like to see it.



Nice Vespa...


How's this for a scooter motor...


Cheers,

ducati cruiser



I found this:

Quote:
In the 1950s, Ducati entered the market of scooters with a technically innovative project: the Ducati Cruiser. The scooter was first released at the Milan Show in January 1952.

The Cruiser had a lot of firsts: it was the first four-stroke scooter, the first scooter with an automatic transmission and the first scooter produced by Ducati. Initially the Cruiser was designed to have 12 horsepower but the engine was later reduced to 7.5 hp because of a governmental regulation limiting the scooters speed limit to 50 km/h.

This model was Ducati’s response to the ever-increasing invasion of scooters in the motorcycle market. The Cruiser was an elegant luxury scooter, superior to the standards of the time and made for a mid-to high portion of the market. Ducati spared no expenses in the development of the Cruiser: Giovanni Fiorio was responsible for the development of the engine and the style was designed in cooperation with Ghia, a company famous for designing luxury cars. The resulting style was unmistakable.

Without a reputation in the market for scooters, the Cruiser was unable to compete with already successful models such as the Vespa or the Lambretta. After only 2 years and approximately a thousand Cruisers made, production was put to a stop.
